WOW what a blast. 2 of us caught several fish between 20 and 36 inches long and one fish that made the 38 inch minimum to take home. Just non stop fun catching the shakers. Season closes soon, but hope to get out again before the end.

From what I rmember of the situation, the gill-netters were mostly of Norwegian/Scandinavian extraction that had grandfathered rights. Much like the Native American Indians have rights the rest of us don't. I think it would be political suicide for aanyone to attempt to restrict them at this point. That's just what I remember from a long time ago however. It could have been wrong originally, or it could have changed.
